Hi, I have a business trip to Seattle in March and wanted to get people's comment as to whether it would be worth it to go see Mt. Rainier. I heard during that season, cars entering the car must be equipped with tire chains and certain centers within the park will be closed. I'll have a rental car so I guess I'd have to buy a tire chain since the rental car company doesn't provide it. This will be a day trip on a Saturday so some questions:
1). What are some of the top things to do and see with the park for a day trip in March? I heard the snowshow trek? Any small hiking opportunities?
2). Does the tire chain must be installed prior to enter the park? Or can you just have them on hand in case the weather turns bad?
3). Does anyone how of any place in Seattle area where you can rent tire chains? Is the Park really strict about cars being equipped with tire chains?
Thanks in advance.Edited: 11:03 am, February 16, 2011
